Gateway AntiVirus
Real-time protection against known viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, and rogueware

Gateway AntiVirus (GatewayAV) is a fully integrated security subscription for WatchGuard XTM appliances. It works in tandem with the application layer content inspection of the XTM to provide real-time protection against known viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, and rogueware. Gateway AV scans traffic on all major protocols, using continually updated signatures to detect and block all types of malware.
